So since we last talked about the kitchen, I have:
- bought kitchen lights
- returned kitchen lights
- ordered new kitchen lights
- which I will probably exchange on pickup for different kitchen lights
- ordered a fridge
- cancelled a fridge
- picked a new fridge, but haven't ordered it
- gone from oiling my floorboards, to not oiling my floorboards
- changed the colour of my caesarstone
Hey, and that's only the kitchen.
Ok, so this is what's happening as of today:
Kitchen with Caesarstone NOUGAT countertops
White vinyl wrap cupboards with silver drawerpulls. Same as my bathroom.
Platinum Micro Laminex peeking through from the laundry-slash-pantry
Beige Royal on the walls - totes boring I suppose, but we like it, and it's the colour I did in my other, finished rooms.
Appliances you can see are stainless steel.
Splashbacks are as-yet undetermined.
My overhead/overbench pendants are black, which I am considering changing to silver. A bit of an unknown until they arrive/some cabinetry goes in and I make the sparky dangle them from the ceiling for my amusement.
Now the underside of the island where you sit on your stools kicking the bench. I want a contrast colour there .. which I will pickup in the splashback. I'm thinking stainless steel ? The sample above is something called DUROPAL, which sounds a bit like a laxative, but is more like a laminate.
But the thing is, I don't think I want a s/steel splashback. I could tint glass I suppose, but I actually think I prefer the texture of tile over a flat smooth surface. I went to the tile place the other day, but I hadn't looked at the below-island laminates them, so it was an aimless browse at best. I'm pretty sure they had some tinted glass tiles that would work
As always, opinions and anecdotes appreciated! ...
